This purpose-built museum of transport is an ideal venue for the family. Experience 200 of transport and the sights, sounds and smells of the past as you walk down the bustling 1940s high street. You’ll also find a cycle shop, a chemist and a co-operative shop in the forties style which makes viewing very interesting.
You’ll have the chance to visit many different galleries such as the Bicycle Gallery that explores the history and development of the bicycle and the Carriage Gallery that has the finest collection of carriages in Britain. And if you are into cars, you could also visit the Motor Car Gallery with its rare motor cars dating back to 1897. You could always board a tram or go on a carriage ride as well. There is so much to see and do here, you won’t be bored.
